PG Online is a multi-award-winning publishing company founded in 2013 by Robert Heathcote, created to fill the perceived lack of comprehensive, affordable resources for teachers.
Robert was involved in setting up Payne-Gallway Publishers in 1998, created to publish Computing and Information Technology textbooks, initially specialising in A level books but eventually publishing popular and useful textbooks for all levels from Key Stage 2 upwards. This very successful company was sold to Harcourt in 2005, and subsequently to Pearson Education.
In 2013 Robert, one of the original successful Payne-Gallway authors and for 13 years a Computing teacher at Graveney School in South London, decided to set up PG Online to provide pre-planned lesson resources, as well as printed books, for schools. The change in guidelines for Key Stage 3 made this an obvious starting point, and having published a successful KS3 series of 20 units, and two GCSE and A Level series for the AQA and OCR specifications, a team of talented authors and subject specialists are busy developing further projects for Design and Technology and other subjects. All authors are highly experienced with a clear understanding of what hard-pressed teachers need to help them through yet another change in school curriculums, and what students need to learn in order to stay ahead in today’s technological environment.
PG People are amazing and are already making a measurable difference to education in the UK and beyond. Here’s why, how and where they do what they do…
